The coronavirus pandemic strikes again, as today's (March 22) instalment of Sunday Brunch has been cancelled.

An official announcement was made via the cooking panel show's Twitter, which read: "We are sad to say that Sunday Brunch will not be on this morning as billed. We put the health and safety of our team above all else and cannot at this time record the show without risk to our presenters and crew.

"We very much hope to be back live on Sundays soon."

Although disappointing for fans of Simon Rimmer and Tim Lovejoy, this news was met with supportive messages.

"Sad but stay safe," read one tweet, while someone else responded: "Really glad to hear this. The TV should be re-runs and news delivered in a safe environment. People need to understand it's not business as usual.

"Cancelling live broadcasts is part of the effort. Well done."

Sunday Brunch will resume on Channel 4 at a later date.
